Update: Just before he died, Tyler Clementi wrote to complain he was 'uncomfortable' with roommate

BY GEOFF MULVIHILL, ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J -- Jurors in the trial of a student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate kissing another man can't hear about an email passage in which the alleged victim referred to the defendant's behavior as "wildly inappropriate," a judge decided Wednesday.

Clementi killed himself shortly afterward.

I stated this a few days after Tyler Clementi's death in a couple of blogs at that time. I do not believe Tyler committed suicide. It was foul play. In any of the blogs at the time of the event he did not indicate he was suicidal. If there are any digital information indicating suicide weeks after the event I would question the validity of those records. It is very easy to fabricate digital data.
